Work on the Zandvoort racing circuit for the Dutch Grand Prix has sustained some "not yet worrying" delays, due to a combination of factors including nitrogen emissions, Jan Lammers, sporting director of the Dutch Grand Prix said to NU.nl.
Formula 1 is returning to the Netherlands with the first Grand Prix since 1985 happening at the Zandvoort circuit in May 2020. Sponsor Heineken and Formula 1 owner Formula One Management made the official announcement on Tuesday, NPO Radio 1 reports.
Circuit Zandvoort has been in talks with the Formula One Management for months about bringing the Grand Prix to the Netherlands. The two parties agreed on a three-year contract.
The Zandvoort circuit reached a five-year agreement with the Formula One Group that will bring the Grand Prix back to the Netherlands as early as next year, magazine Motorsportweek reports based on sources.
